Great news for those who fly out of Syracuse, Albany, or Rochester New York. One major airline just changed the game.

Starting in February of 2023, Delta will offer free Wi-Fi in partnership with T-Mobile to all customers on board most domestic mainline flights. The wifi won't be choppy, it'll be fast so you can text photos of Upstate New York right to your social media.

“At work, at home and everywhere in between, connectivity is essential to daily life, and your journey on Delta should be no different,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian at CES 2023 in Las Vegas. “Our vision has long been to deliver an experience at 30,000 feet that feels similar to what our customers have available on the ground.”

According to Delta, all customers need to do is log in using their Delta SkyMiles account or join SkyMiles on the ground or in the air for free to connect.
